Quite amazing film about how the US is looking for more abled bodied people to work at other jobs while Johhy is overseas. Quite amazing documentary footage is shown filled with amazingly bad dialog between "workers" which go something like "How do you like your job?" "It's Okay!". Another interesting thing is that you can almost detect a pecking order the US wanted their workers, which, if I remember correctly, go something like Able Bodied Men, Negro, Migrants, cripples and THEN women. At least it's implied. Pretty amazing.
